Sun’s out, FUN’s out!

Even my clients with more classic style are seduced by the fun, flirty trends of Spring. And it is understandable why. Spring fashion trends allow us to explore new styles, cuts, colors, and prints. Not sure sure where to start with incorporating trends into your everyday look? In my recent YouTube video, I break down 5 Functional ways you can easily add these top trends to your wardrobe!

Cut Away Hem:

This trend marries the Summer fave, the maxi dress, with the flattering cut of a wrap dress. The Hi-Lo hemline is perfect for the season and adds visual interest. You will see this look in skirts and dresses, so you can achieve the look by pairing a skirt with a top if you prefer separates.

You will find ruffles in many sizes and variations right now. One of the easiest ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is with a subtle ruffle on a soft cotton shirt. It will jazz up even a basic tee making it easy to pair with jeans, work pants, or even a skirt.

Vertical Stripes

So many people feel self conscious in horizontal stripes because they fear that they make them look wider. The benefit of the vertical stripe trend is that you can feel chic all while elongating your body! You can find this trend on tops, dresses, skirts, and even pants!

Denim Dress

I know that you all love to live in denim. From chambray tops to your favorite pair of jeans, denim is here to stay. For that casual cool look in a new and feminine trend, try a denim dress! It will take you from the work to the farmers market all with effortless style.  Look for a soft fabric like tencel or lyocell, which don’t wrinkle as easily.

To get the look of a knotted top without having to fuss with doing it yourself, look for tops that are already tied! You will save your self from having to adjust it all day and it will always look just right.
